Evaluation. The Body Mass Index (BMI), which is the ratio of a person's weight to height, has traditionally been used to assess a person's health status related to weight. If your BMI is 25.0 to <30, it falls within the overweight range. If your BMI is 30.0 or higher, it falls within the obese range.
Obesity is bad news both physically and mentally. Not only is someone tired and uncomfortable, but the extra weight puts stress on the body, especially the bones and joints of the legs. Overweight children and kids are more likely to develop diabetes and other health problems. Overweight adults are also more likely to have heart disease.
Please enter your height and weight either in English or metric units, then click "Am I Overweight?" button. It will give you the result instantly. You can also download the result in PDF filetype.
